What top 3 things did you learn while on the retreat?

1. How to approach brands and what a collaboration with a brand or hotel might be like
2. How to build a media kit, what a media kit is for, and how to professionally present yourself as a brand
3. How to pose for Instagram, editing tricks, and how to make my feed cohesive

What was a highlight from your trip?

I loved getting all the beautifully created and edited content, which I’ll be posting for many days to come. I also think I will really benefit from the working with brands and hotels workshop.

How has your blog or Instagram grown since the retreat?

It’s only been a week but so far my average daily new followers on Instagram has grown slightly due to some tips I was given during the retreat. I’m hoping what I have learned about creating content will only help it grow more and faster in the future. Check back in a couple of months!

Which workshop was your fav and why?

The brand and hotel collaboration workshop was my favorite because this is generally information that is difficult to find elsewhere, ie through Google. I learned so much about the types of services you can offer brands, what’s appropriate, how to negotiate, how to stand up for myself when it comes to my brand, what to expect, and so much more.

Would you recommend the retreat to a friend or someone who is interested in joining us on a retreat?

Yes! It’s not cheap but I see it as an investment in my brand, one that I hope to make back within the next year through collaborations with brands and hotels.

Join us on our next retreat!!
